Arthur Koestler is one of those writers whose best story is his own life. Following him is like trailing the hero of an adventure novel, but set in the cataclysmic events of our century. As much a philosopher as an adventurer, Koestler was also a precursor in his abondant work of scientific popularization, due to his important philosophical reflexion on the subject of sciences. This portrait is as quick as the tempo of this life, racing along at breakneck speed, every precious moment seized as if it were the last before he was jolted away by a flash of inspiration.
